Welcome to Community Missions

Since its founding in 1925, Community Missions (CMI) has provided a unique blend of services to address the needs of the Niagara community. In general, CMI serves a vulnerable population of individuals that, through a variety of circumstances, have been underserved, marginalized, overlooked and challenging in their presentations and behaviors.

The initial population served was homeless individuals and families, which are still served today. The agency currently provides 19 programs within its four divisions: Crisis & Community Services, Mental Health Housing Services, Mental Health Recovery Services, and Youth Services.

The agency serves a diverse set of populations, including youth, adults, families, homeless, youth involved with the juvenile justice system, youth and adults with psychiatric challenges, persons living with HIV/AIDS, trafficked youth and adults, and ex-offender parole individuals.
